PB since this is based on the V class, the forecastle is nearly just like it.
BlackBuck, I moved the deck back around the funnel, and concerning the bridge, I'm gonna leave it as is.
Here is an update.

To me, I think it looks good. If anyone thinks I should change or add something, let me know.
Thank you for your feedback.

This is honestly the first good drawing you've shown us.

All it's missing is the customary scale bar, but I'd be more concerned about keeping up the practice and drawing more ships.

Thank you, klag. Right now, I'm just drawing my version of WW1 ships that I have grown a liking to, and as I get them drawn I may put them in a WW1 era AU, (which would eventually be predecessor to the United States of Denton). My plans right now are to do another Destroyer based on the Town class, a collier based on the Proteus class, and a river monitor based on the Arkansas Class. Maybe also a few support vessels, and later an aircraft carrier (from the hull of the collier, like the USS Langley).

I can only agree with Klag, that this is a very decent effort, that avoids 'inflation'; so yes, you could leave it as it is, otherwise we'll all keep offering ideas ;) My latest.... :lol: would be to move the bridge and a and b guns back a few pixels, as you seem to have the space to balance the bow weight more favourably...only an idea :idea:

I'd agree with Bill, there is perhaps room behind the mast to move the bridge and A and B mounts back a litte. Would make them drier too. It's just an idea, it looks pretty fine as it is.

I agree with both comments, that is move the bridge along with the forward guns back a bit and as mentioned this is a very nice and good effort.

Thank you for all the positive comments.
I did as y'all suggested and moved the bridge and the A and B guns back 6 feet.

I'm looking to continue with this little drawing exercise I had going here, but I'm stumped on what ships I should draw. Besides the small worklist I have in one of the last posts, which consists of a Collier, a Destroyer, and a River monitor, what other ships would make for a decent, early WW1 navy? As it is, I already have the large Project 3 Battlecruiser, and the Project 5 Destroyer. I figure I would need a few more classes of destroyers, 2 or 3 classes of cruisers, maybe a battleship, and some minesweeping/laying vessels. Does anyone have any recommendations on the ships I should base these off of?

Thanks for your feedback,
-EZ-

Supply ships, rescue and salvage tugs, survey ships.
MTBs were in their infancy, ro you might want to get into that game early.

Depending on the development of your navy, you might want to include a pre-dreadnought battleship. If not, then a single battleship comparable maybe, to the Orion/Iron Duke/Erin class or the Pennsylvania class. Destroyers would look similar to the early destroyers of foreign navies, an since you have shown designs based off of British and American vessels, you can start with something like the Paulding or L class (1913) just to name a few. Cruisers would be broadside broadside cruisers, so I would expect a one or two scout cruisers, then 2-4 light cruisers. If earlier than 1910, then look towards armored cruisers.
